I really enjoyed The $150,000 Rugelach

Review by Tilly

I really enjoyed The $150,000 Rugelach by Allison and Wayne Marks! This book is about two kids named Jack and Jillian who enter a cooking contest together that will be live on TV. The person running the contest, Phineas Farnsworth III, is Jack’s idol. Jillian’s mom died, and Farnsworth really wants her to talk about it at the competition, but Jillian doesn’t want to. Farnsworth tries to get Jack to convince her, and Jack almost does it. But then he finds something out that turns him against Farnsworth. There’s a plot twist that’s really unexpected! I would probably rate this book 4/5 stars. I also really liked the recipes at the end of the book. I am going to make the rugelach! I think this book is perfect for kids who like stories about baking, kindness, and friendship!

Yummy Friendship

Review by MissAmerica

I enjoyed the book $150,000 Rugelach because of three reasons 1. The recipes in the back of the $150,000 Rugelach 2. Rivalry turned friendship & 3. and sweet honesty.
